GENERAL INFORMATION. In 1949 Prescott Baston designed three nursery rhymes for "in the round."  They were planned to be placed on music boxes where they would rotate while a tune would play.  The plan never worked with the music box supplier and Baston sold them as popular figurines for over 30 years.
     "Mary Had a Little Lamb" portrays the original "Little Red School House" in Sudbury, Massachusetts where Mary and her lamb meet her teacher.
